BATMAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!

I enjoy the Batted man in his many incarnations, but my first intro to the character was watching reruns of the old Adam West and Burt Ward series from the 60s, so while this may look a little mean, it’s cooked with love.

Batman’s costume was just a little off in the series. The eyes were cut into the cowl in such a way that they always made him look a little cross-eyed. Also the let the cowl hang out from under the cape making a weird little circular collar in the front. The painted-on eyebrows are off, to be sure, but strangest of all had to be that square painted around the tip of the nose. Riddle me this, Batman: WHY IS THERE A LITTLE SQUARE PAINTED AROUND THE TIP OF YOUR NOSE?

No time for riddles, old chum - TO THE BATPOLES

Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark


When I was a little kid, I was afraid to see Raiders of the Lost Ark, because I heard about the face-melting. So it wasn’t until years later, and after seeing Temple of Doom that I finally saw the original.

DANGER! DANGER, WILL ROBINSON!


I love the television show Lost in Space. I'm not arguing that it's a good show, just that it's a lot of fun. Here are the three characters, Dr. Smith, the robot, and Will, that slowly took over the show completely after the initial attempts at making a serious space drama about space Captain Robinson and his space family and their space ship.

Right after finishing this, I learned that Dick Tufeld, the inimitable voice of the robot, recently died, so I guess this is also kind of an accidental tribute.
